2020 SHSU Bearkat Bolt 5k Virtual Series!!

WHEN IS THE RACE?

Due to COVID-19, we are practicing social distancing by making our event virtual for this year. The twist we have added is that this year will be a race series for Summer and Fall 2020. You can run, jog or walk anytime and anywhere. All runners and walkers are welcome! We are all in this together.  If you complete both races, both of your medals can be connected to form one larger medal.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO REGISTER?
